Yesterday morning a rumor surfaced in the pro paintball smackbox that the Joy Division CPL spot was for sale. PRO Paintball insiders sent us word today that one of the longest running European pro paintball teams has retired their guns.

Here is a statement from Magued Idris, Owner & Manger of Joy Division;

“We will end it now as most of the guys feel it’s time. It have been the best time of our lives and soo glad and proud to have been part of paintball.

What I’m most proud of is that the team have kept together from day one. Not 1 player in the 15 year history of the teamhave left Joy for another team and therefor it’s just right that we end it together.”

No word yet as to which teams the Joy Division players will be playing with in 2011.
